"Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life." -Rumi
When we focus on what is working in our life, and we are grateful for it -- we gain the energy to do more of that...and less of what isn't...think self-care 101 :)
Here’s a simple 2 step gratitude meditation:
1. Invest 5–10 minutes at the start or end of your day writing what you’re grateful for.
What great things happened today?
What are you thankful for in your life right NOW?
Who are you thankful for?
Maybe you are grateful for your morning cup of coffee, a hug from a loved one or furry friend, even hitting only green lights on the way to work.
It doesn’t matter how big or small; find as many things as you can to be grateful for and write them down.
2. Next, feel in your body NOW the experience of gratitude. Maybe it feels open, expansive, joyful. Set a timer for 2 minutes. Continue focusing on these feelings during your 2 minute meditation.
Practicing gratitude will make you healthier and happier, and it will be easier to focus on what’s good rather than what’s not working in your life.
